If you notice a little more “sparkle” around Roanoke Valley Orthodontics the next time you visit, it’s because RVO has been awarded accreditation as an Invisalign Diamond Top 1% Provider! This designation indicates that our office ranks among the top 1% of Invisalign providers in North America, providing Invisalign treatment to over 1000 patients.
We want to thank all our Invisalign patients, past a present, for trusting us with your orthodontic treatment. You are the reason we do what we do every day!
So what is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a nearly invisible way to straighten your teeth and get a beautiful, healthy smile. We use a custom system of clear aligners to gradually move your teeth into place.
Unlike at-home do-it-yourself clear aligners, your Invisalign treatment takes place in person at one of our three locations and is supervised by Dr. Jones. He will personally develop your personalized treatment plan after an in-office consultation and examination, when we can get to know you and your treatment goals and prescribe the customized treatment that is best for you.
What are the benefits of an Invisalign Diamond Top 1% Provider?
Orthodontists or dentists who offers Invisalign can have a spectrum of training and experience with Invisalign. Some may only treat a couple of patients per month! With so many Invisalign providers out there, you might wonder why you would choose a Diamond Top 1% Provider over another practice.
The Diamond Top 1% status is based on volume of cases over time. At RVO, we rank in the top 1% of providers in terms of number of cases. That means you can be confident that Dr. Jones has more experience than any other provider in southern Virginia and has treated every type of orthodontic condition. We use Invisalign for an array of orthodontic situations, including:
- Gaps in teeth
- Open bite
- Early interceptive needs in children
- Teeth that are mostly straight but need to be nudged into place to achieve a perfect smile
It’s important to note that Dr. Jones will also be able to tell you if there’s a better option than Invisalign for your particular case and map out a treatment plan using the orthodontic appliance that’s best for you.
Overall, Diamond Top 1% providers are generally recognized as the best in the field. If they weren’t getting good results and great feedback from patients, it’s likely they wouldn’t have the opportunity to complete enough cases to receive the Diamond Top 1% designation.
Treatment that fits your lifestyle
Like most Invisalign Diamond Top 1% Providers, Dr. Jones understands the reasons some people dread traditional metal braces. Brushing with braces is harder, so sometimes dental hygiene declines. If you just can’t resist that popcorn or beef jerky, you could wind up with a loose bracket or bent wire. If you play sports or participate in other contact activities, trauma to the face can cause injuries inside the mouth when the tongue or cheek hits metal. Depending on your school or work schedule, attending regular orthodontic check-ups might be challenging.
Unlike braces, Invisalign clear aligners are removable and eliminate many of the lifestyle changes patients associate with braces. There are no food restrictions and you can continue to brush and floss your teeth as normal with no braces to get in the way. While we love to see you at our office, you’ll likely have fewer visits to the orthodontist than you would if you were wearing traditional braces.
Advanced orthodontic technology
Forget sitting in the chair with a mouthful of impression putty. Like other Diamond Top 1% Invisalign providers, RVO uses the iTero Impressionless Scanner to create a 3D digital image of your teeth (also radiation-free). The scan takes about one-third of the time of traditional impressions and produces a much more accurate digital model of your teeth. You don’t have to worry about distorting the scan if you accidentally move, and we get a digital display in real time. That means we can make immediate adjustments when necessary and ensure we’re getting an accurate scan the first time.
Orthodontic practices that invest in iTero technology often have made other technological investments as well to improve patient care. At RVO, you’ll see the most advanced patient care tools in the field, including secure electronic records, digital appointment check-ins and green technology.
Treatment for all ages
Diamond Top 1% Providers typically have a patient base that includes everyone from children to seniors. Dr. Jones has provided orthodontic treatment with Invisalign for children coming out of early interceptive treatment, teens looking for an alternative to braces, and adults who might think they are too old for orthodontic treatment. He has also provided corrective treatment to patients who have had a bad experience with another provider.
Flexible payment terms
Diamond Top 1% Invisalign providers have usually worked with hundreds of families and have developed a variety of payment options that make Invisalign affordable. For example, our team knows how to work with your insurance to maximize your benefit. We can share information about flexible spending accounts and health savings accounts, both of which cover orthodontic treatment. We offer flexible payment plans, including options that allow you to extend your payments beyond the treatment period, and discounts for payment in full up front or having multiple family members in treatment at the same time.
Experienced treatment team
Dr. Jones is awesome, but he doesn’t do it all by himself!! Our clinical assistants and treatment coordinators are well-versed in the use of Invisalign. They know what to expect from treatment and can share tips with our patients on how to best comply with treatment instructions. They are experts at using the iTero scanner and understand how to interpret Dr. Jones’ treatment plan. You can rest assured that you’re in the good hands of a skilled, knowledgeable team!
